Skin Care Review: Neutrogena Anti-wrinkle cream with retinol

by Robyn

Adverse Effects

Did help with hyperpigmentation.

Causes skin to become very sun sensitive.

I admit that quite quickly (within 1-2 weeks) I did notice that my skin color was becoming more even. I have slight hyper-pigmentation. However, I began breaking out like crazy! I've never had anything more than occasional breakouts (usually during my cycle!) But, when I began using this product my skin was like that of a 13 year old! I'm still waiting for my skin to clear up. Even if this is part of the "therapy" initally, I'm not sure I'm willing to suffer these consequences. The cream has drying-effect on this skin. Since I'm breaking out in all areas, it's difficult to apply the product around my skin that is already irritated. It causes my breakouts to become inflamed, red and flakey - like a chemical burn. It's important to be very carefuly when usuing during the summer months (I live in the south) it makes your skin very sun sensitive.

any improvements not worth the breakouts.
